POCO X3 Pro launches in India as a spiritual successor to the original POCO F1

After launching the POCO X3 Pro and POCO F3 globally last week, POCO is now bringing the POCO X3 Pro to the Indian shores. The earlier models in the series, the POCO X2 and POCO X3 have been quite popular in the mid-range space and the company is hoping to repeat the same magic with...

The POCO X3 Pro reminds me of a 2019 flagship, and that’s not a bad thing

The POCO X3 NFC made waves in the latter half of 2020 when it offered something that much of the competition could not -- powerful mid-range specs and a 120Hz display all at a low price. In Europe, you could pick it up for around €200 at launch, and I have personally recommended it to...
